WINSTON-SALEM - After one quarter of play for the Elon University football team, the defense was standing tall against the Wake Forest University offense, allowing just three points. But the Demon Deacons had possession of the ball for 9 minutes and 33 seconds in the first, and the amount of time spent on the field came back to haunt Elon's defense in the second quarter. Wake Forest scored 21 points in the 2nd quarter and never looked back, defeating Elon 41-3 Thursday night while gaining 591 yards of total offense. "If we want to be a dominant-style defense, we have to do it for 60 minutes," head coach Rich Skrosky said.
